"My overall answer to the question, though, is that I was too young to relate to much of this music that way. It was the music of people just enough older than me that I looked up to them and envied them, but didn't feel it was "my" music."

I hear ya, Ringading. To me, it was the music of my babysitters: Irish sisters with long, red hair, tire-tread sandals, and bell-bottoms big enough to shade squirrels in the summer. They always had a burnt smell to them and they kind of shuffled in a Shaggie-from-Scooby-Doo kind of way.

What age group did you have to be to be a hippy? Is it like baby boomers, where they give actual dates (1946-62 or something like that)? Can a hippy be from any era, or is it not possible to be a real hippy if you weren't, say, at least a teenager in the Summer of Love?

random, time-wasting thoughts ...

I believe all you have to do is fail the smell test---time is irrelevant.
